My spouse came to the ranch to see the mother's day moose and there isn't one. She won't even let me talk about programming but she loves the moose She says to tell the ranch that not having a mother's day moose is very sad....

So sorry she was disappointed! We'll have to remedy that for next year!

No, Mothering Sunday being in March. We never celebrate Mother's Day in this country, which is why none of us in Britain even noticed.

That's interesting, I was not aware that those were two different things. I'll be sure to bring that up with Paperchase next year.

Chances of Paperchase knowing are negligible. Everywhere else seems to celebrate Mother's Day; it is only us who have a different festival three weeks before Easter (as you say, usually in March).

It would not be nice to ignore father's day. The more holiday moose the better...!

Is there a Fathering Sunday? Do other countries in Europe celebrate either version of these holidays?

I'm picturing a moose with a Fred McMurray pipe and fedora.

Yes, I like that . . . . and perhaps in the background on the moose's blind side a little moose launching itself at the pipe stem intending to use it for a monkey bar ?

Where there are children there is chaos.

Hm ... June? Just asking because over here father's day is celebrated on Ascension Day, which would be May 29 this year. Not sure if any other countries do the same, but apparently not the UK and its former dominions.

Just take a look on those links:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Father's_Day#Dates_around_the_world
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mother's_Day#Dates_around_the_world

So many possibilities ;).

Wow, a little program would be needed just to keep track of all the father's and mother's days. Those holiday moose would be very busy. Then there is parenting day and sibling day.

I think it would be good if the moose heal was replaced with a motherly head. As if "mother's day" may have been confused with "mothers season". Same for father's day.
